Abstract:

A critical next step for METRC is the integration of its results with other relevant research, multidisciplinary clinical expertise and patient values to develop Clinical Practice Guidelines CPGs and criteria for the appropriate use of the guidelines through development of Appropriate Use Criteria AUCs. To this end, six clinical topics were identified 1 Diagnosis and Treatment of Acute Compartment Syndrome 2 Limb Salvage vs. Amputation Following Major Limb Trauma 3 Early Screening for Psychosocial Risk and Protective Factors 4 Use of Multimodal Perioperative Pharmacologic Pain Management 5 Techniques for Performing Transtibial Amputation- Burgess vs. Ertl and 6 Prevention and Treatment of Surgical Site Infection.
